I decided beforehand that I would only look at what was on sale. I also decided to find clothes that would be modest and honoring to God. That can be difficult to do at the mall, but today I didn't seem to have any problem keeping both of those promises! And, I am so glad I was able to do that because for a little under $120 spent I came away with:
- 6 new pairs of underwear
- 2 new pairs of dress pants (gray and black)
- 2 sweaters (peach and gray)
- 2 tank tops (gray and white)
- 1 "dressy" knit top
- 1 new pair of black dress shoes
- 2 new shirts for Gunnar (what can I say! I'm a Mom and just can't resist spending my money on my Lil Man!)
I got the new dress shoes at J.C. Penney's for.....$18! Talk about a steal! My gray tank top also came from J.C. Penney's and cost a whopping $4. Yes, you read that correctly! Ya gotta love the Clearance rack ;)
I think what I love most about the tops that I bought, is that all tops can be worn with jeans, black dress pants, or gray dress pants! I love tops that are versatile and able to either be "dressed-up" if you're going some place nice, or "toned-down" if you're going someplace a little more casual. Also, the two tank tops I got can both be worn with all three tops. So, in all I think we're looking at approximately 15 different outfits than can be put together from what I bought today :)
All in all, I'd say it was a very good shopping experience! And, best of all....I still have Christmas money left over! Hmm....what to spend it on? Whatever I decide, I'm sure I'll have a blast spending the rest of it :)
This entire outfit only cost me $34!
A $14 outfit! Can't beat that!
Unfortunately in this picture you can't see the white tank top I have on underneath.
I'll have to post a picture of Gunnar in his new shirts tomorrow :)
